    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 14th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: The 10-year Bund yield is down -0.1 bp at 0.477% in opening trade. Bond markets pretty quickly shrugged off the hawkish Fed during the Asian session as the PBOC failed to follow up and as stock markets headed south. The PBOC didn’t follow the Fed and tighten policy as had been speculated, but Trump said he will confront China “very strongly” over trade in coming weeks and a number of key data of of China, including retail sales and industrial output missed estimates, which added to concerns over a softening economy. Bond markets benefited from the sell off in stocks and the fact that the PBOC refrained from tightening and even Treasury yields fell back from earlier highs. 10-year Treasury yields are down -1.8 bp and at 2.948%, below the levels seen ahead of the Fed announcement. 10-year JGBs are down -0.6 bp. German final inflation data held no surprise and was confirmed at 2.2% y/y and the data calendar also has final French inflation readings as well as U.K. retail sales, but the focus is on the ECB, which is finally expected to confirm the end of QE, leaving the focus on the forward guidance.

    FX Update: The dollar has more than given back gains seen in the immediate wake of the Fed’s rate hike and hawkish-tilting guidance. EURUSD recouped back above 1.1800 after dipping to a 1.1725 low, post Fed. The euro has been trading generally firmer over the last day, gaining against the pound, Swiss franc, among other currencies, with market narratives focusing on the successful Italian auction of 30-year bonds yesterday, with the appetite for the long-dated debt seen as a good litmus test of investor sentiment on the new Italian government. Market participants are also anticipating the ECB to announce an end of QE policy today. Elsewhere, USDJPY printed a three-day low of 110.04. The biggest movement out of the main currencies has been AUDJPY and is showing a loss of over 0.5%. The Aussie dollar has been under pressure following a sub-forecast Australian employment report. Ahead today, the ECB is expecting to announce the end of QE, while U.S. President Trump will reportedly decide whether to proceed with tariffs on Chinese goods later on Thursday — and his unabashed form this week suggests he won’t hold back.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * UK Retail Sales – Expectations – to rise 0.5% m/m in May, which would affirm a continued recovery from sharp weather-affected weakness in March, although at a decelerated pace from the 1.6% m/m growth seen in April.

    * SNB press conference

    * ECB Rate Decision and Press Conference – Expectations – Comments from ECB officials suggest that the ECB is finally ready to formally announce the end of net asset purchases. The main question in recent months has been the actual timing of the announcement, not the policy change. So the announcement of a short taper through Q4 would not really come as a surprise, leaving intense focus on the forward guidance. Mr. Draghi expected to initially wrap the announcement in rather dovish language to keep markets from running away with rate hike speculation at a time when geopolitical risks are still hanging over markets.

    * US Retail Sales and Unemployment Claims – Expectations – Retail sales are expected to rise 0.4% in May, following a 0.2% increase in April and a 0.7% gain in March. Initial jobless claims are estimated to be slightly changed at 224k for the week ended June 9.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 15th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund yields are down -0.9 bp at 0.41% in opening trade, as global bond markets remain supported by Draghi’s dovish tone yesterday, which was followed by a BoJ statement that left policy unchanged, but downgraded the inflation assessment. Global stock markets are trading mixed though, as the focus returns to trade risks. And for Europe, the weaker EUR may still add support to equity markets, but given that rate hike expectations had already been pushed out amid weak data releases, market reaction to the ECB’s commitment to keep rates steady through summer 2019 seems somewhat overdone. The European calendar has final inflation readings for the Eurozone as well as trade numbers for April, but after the ECB move yesterday these are unlikely to have much market impact.

    FX Update: The dollar has traded broadly firmer so far today, with the ECB’s dovish-tilting guidance yesterday coupled with the BoJ lowering its prognosis on the inflation outlook (following a widely-anticipated decision to leave monetary policy unchanged) serving to emphasize the Fed’s relatively hawkish stance. EURUSD extended to a fresh 16-day low of 1.1555 in Asia trading. The pair had been trading above 1.1820 ahead of the ECB’s announcement yesterday, and the magnitude of losses are the sharpest over a day since October 26th-27th of last year. USDJPY, meanwhile, lifted to a 24-day high of 110.99. The BoJ’s downgraded CPI forecast underlines the chronic undershooting of the inflation target and points to ongoing ultra-accommodative policy — which includes pegging the 10-year JGB yield at near 0% — for the foreseeable future, certainly through to 2019. The dollar also posted gains against the dollar bloc currencies and sterling, and most other currencies, including emerging and newly-developed world currencies. Market participants will now be bracing for President Trump’s expected escalation of trade tariffs, as he will reportedly be confirming tariffs on China later today.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * Eurozone May HICP – Expectations – inflation is expected to be confirmed at 1.9% y/y with the final release today, up from 1.2% y/y in April. The impact of higher oil prices is partly to blame, as are higher food prices, but in the preliminary number core inflation also lifted. The headline rate is pretty much in line with the ECB’s definition of price stability and there is in fact a slight risk of an upside revision. However, with the ECB meeting out of the way, and Draghi confirming that rates won’t rise before the end of the summer 2019 the numbers are unlikely to have much market impact.

    * Canada manufacturing Sales – Expectations – expected to reveal a 1.0% gain in April after the 1.4% rise in March.

    * US Industrial production & UoM Consumer Sentiment – Expectations – Industrial production may rise 0.2% in May, following strong 0.7% readings in April and March and capacity utilization should edge up to 78.1% from 78.0%. Finally, the Michigan sentiment expected to be improved to 98.5 from 98.0.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 18th June 2018.




    THE ECONOMIC WEEK AHEAD

    Main Macro Events This Week

    The FOMC tightened policy last week and followed with a more hawkish stance as it suggested two more hikes could be on the way this year. Additionally, the ECB finally announced a phase-out of QE asset purchases. But, a balanced press conference from Fed Chairman Powell and a dovish slant from President Draghi mitigated a bearish response in the markets. But trade tensions resurfaced Friday after President Trump’s announced tariffs on China, which responded in kind. Central banks remain in the spotlight and the BoE headlines, but there are also decisions from Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, and the Philippines, along with the ECB’s Sintra conference. OPEC meets while PMI data will provide timely clues global economies.

    United States: The U.S. data calendar should support the more upbeat message on the economy delivered by the FOMC last week. Housing reports dominate and should show overall improvement. June PMI reports should also reveal still solid readings, even if they moderate slightly. And the leading economic index should rise for an 8th consecutive month. May housing starts (Tuesday) are estimated rising 0.6% to 1.295 mln following a 3.7% plunge in April to 1.287 mln. The June NAHB housing market index (Monday) is expected unchanged at 70. Also on tap is the FHFA home price index (Thursday) which should rise to 263.1 in April from 261.7. The Philly Fed index (Thursday) should fall 9.4 points to a still-strong 25.0 in June, after jumping 11.2 points to a 1-year high to 34.4 in May, with a concomitant slide in the ISM-adjusted Philly Fed to 59.7 from a 45-year high of 62.5 in May. Markit manufacturing and services PMIs are due Friday. The May leading economic index (Thursday) is expected to rise 0.3%, following gains of 0.4% in April and March. This would be an 8th consecutive increase, and the index hasn’t posted a decline since May 2016. The current account deficit (Wednesday) is expected to widen to -$129.0 bln in Q1, from -$128.2 bln in Q4. Initial jobless claims (Thursday) are seen edging up 1k to 219k in the week ended June 16, which coincides with the BLS employment survey week. Claims are oscillating around tight levels at multi-decade lows.

    Canada: The calendar features two top tier data releases and an appearance by a Bank of Canada official. The week beings with Senior Deputy Governor Patterson (Monday), who speaks to the Investment Industry Association of Canada on “Rebooting Reference Rates.” In May, the Bank maintained the 1.25% rate setting and moved closer to hiking rates again, but assured that their approach remains gradual.

    CPI (Friday) is expected to climb 0.4% in May (m/m, nsa) after the 0.3% gain in April, as further gains in gasoline prices boost the CPI. The CPI is projected to expand at a 2.5% y/y pace in May from 2.2% in April. A jump in the annual CPI growth rate should not alter the BoC’s gradualism — in the May announcement they noted that inflation will “likely be a bit higher in the near term than forecast in April” due mostly to gasoline prices.Retail sales (Friday) are anticipated to rise only 0.1% (m/m, sa) in April after the 0.6% gain in March, as a decline in vehicle sales weighs. The ex-autos aggregate is expected to improve 0.5% after the 0.2% drop in March. Wholesale shipment (Thursday) are seen rising 0.5% in April after the 1.1% gain in March, which would provide a welcome contrast to the 1.3% plunge in manufacturing shipment volumes revealed for April.

    Europe: This week’s round of data releases, which include preliminary PMI readings, are unlikely to offer much comfort as we expect a further decline in confidence levels across both manufacturing and services sectors. With markets still adjusting to the latest policy twists, data releases may have limited impact.

    The Eurozone June Manufacturing PMI (Friday) at 55.0, down from 55.5 in the previous month, as trade concerns continue to bite. The services reading is expected to hold up slightly better and fall back to 53.8 from 53.8 in the May. This could leave the overall reading at 53.6, down from 54.1 in the previous month. Again, still a robust number suggesting solid growth, but the ongoing decline in confidence readings in Q2 will likely lead to further downward revisions to growth estimate, as the slowdown in Q1 proved to be not quite as temporary as initially expected. So far labor markets continue to improve and wage growth is picking up, so only a small decline in the Eurozone preliminary consumer confidence number is expected (Thursday) to 0.1 from 0.2, although negative geopolitical headlines could have dented sentiment more than anticipated.

    Other data releases include national French confidence numbers, as well as the final reading of French Q1 GDP, the latter too backward looking to have much impact. German PPI inflation is expected to jump to 2.5% from 2.0% thanks to higher oil prices, but at this juncture that won’t matter much as the ECB already lifted its inflation forecasts.

    UK: The BoE’s MPC gathers for a policy meeting (announcing Thursday), where a no change in the 0.5% repo rate and QE totals are widely anticipated. The focus will fall on the statement and minutes for guidance, which will be of particular interest following a run of overall disappointing data so far available from April and May. Much will also depend on incoming data and how the worsening trade war evolves, in so far as it starts to have a material impact on global economies, thereby, and policymaker decision making. The UK’s data calendar features the June CBI industrial trends survey (Wednesday), which due to the reports limited breadth and short survey period tends to be overlooked by markets, and May government borrowing figures (Thursday).

    Japan: The April all-industry index (Thursday) is estimated rising 0.8% m/m from the prior flat reading. The pace of inflation likely slowed slightly. May national CPI (Friday) should reveal a cooler 0.5% y/y pace overall from the prior 0.6% clip.

    Australia: The minutes to the Reserve Bank of Australia’s May meeting (Tuesday) are the highlight of a thin week.Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd June 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 0.5 bp at 2.9025, 10-year JGBs up 0. 1bp at 0.025%, both are down from session highs, but holding on to some of their gains as stock market sentiment settles ahead of key PMI readings in the Eurozone and the US today. Stock market sentiment remains muted, after yesterday’s sell off on Wall Street, but indices are up from early lows. Topix and Nikkei are still down -0.46% and -0.63% respectively, Hang Seng and CSI 300 managed to claw back some of yesterday’s losses and are up 0.19% and 0.40%. Trade concerns continue to linger and in Europe Italian political jitters remain a major concern, but US Stock Futures are improving. USOIL rallied and is at $66.26. OPEC and its allies reached a preliminary agreement to boost production despite opposition from Iran. The calendar had national CPI for Japan, which saw the annual reading rising to 0.7% from 0.6%. The Manufacturing PMI Index, meanwhile, rose to 53.1 from 52.8 and the All Industry Activity Index also improved.

    FX Update: The Dollar has traded moderately softer so far today, extending a theme that has been seen since yesterday following the release of the Philly Fed index, which came in much weaker than expected. Amid this backdrop, the Euro has corrected some of its recent losses against most other currencies, which has likely reflected short covering, although in a market still wary about the Italian Government’s Eurosceptic bias. EURUSD has recovered back above 1.1600, posting a 3-day high at 1.1638. The pair had yesterday printed an 11-month low at 1.1508. USDJPY has settled near the 110.0 level, consolidating yesterday’s losses after the pair posted a 5-day high at 1110.75. Today, the focus will be on PMI survey data out of both Europe and the US, the evolving trade war, and the OPEC-plus-Russia meeting in Vienna, the run-in to which has exposed signs of discord among some members, which has pushed oil prices up.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th June 2018.




    Main Macro Events This Week

    The escalating trade war remained the dominant negative force in the markets the past couple of weeks, along with OPEC fine tuning its supply constraints. Heading into quarter-end, centrifugal forces on trade, immigration, policy, growth and inflation will continue to stretch investor patience. One last flurry of inputs and risks will be mulled as we cross the threshold into Q3.

    United States: The US economic calendar will be highlighted by the Personal Income and Consumption Report, which should register solid growth in May. We’ll also get the final Q1 GDP reading, which is expected to show moderate improvement from the Q1 second estimate. Yet focus has shifted to the Q2 reading, which should show a strong rebound in spending and growth. Also of interest will be Consumer Confidence and Michigan Sentiment, which should confirm that consumers continue to perceive economic and market conditions as positive. Durable Goods orders may decline, while New Home Sales should show modest improvement in May. The following week’s calendar to kick off July will include key June data, with payrolls expected to record a solid 195k increase.

    Fedspeak resumes with Dallas Fed hawk Kaplan (Tuesday) Q&A and Atlanta Fed dove Bostic in an armchair chat on civil rights. Fed VC for supervision Quarles will discuss “International Regulatory Participation and Cooperation” (Wednesday) and Boston Fed hawk Rosengren will mull “Is the Economy Too Sensitive to Economic Downturns?” St. Louis Fed dove Bullard will take part (Thursday) in a discussion on the US Economy and Monetary Policy.

    Canada: BoC events dominate the docket this week: a speech by Governor Poloz to the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce (Wednesday) will be the final outing for a BoC official ahead of the July 11 rate announcement. An economy running near potential, 2% CPI and a 40-year low jobless rate are consistent with the Bank delivering on the signals from the May announcement and progress report that pointed to a near term rate hike. But recent data has undershot expectations, notably April retail sales and May CPI. We still expect a 25 basis point increase in July, but the likelihood has been trimmed in recent weeks due to the data. Another rate hike is penciled in this year (expected to happen in October) but uncertainty over NAFTA further clouds the policy outlook past July.

    The Bank of Canada’s Business Outlook Survey for Q2 (Friday) is expected to show an economy still running near potential, with inflation expectations at well inside the Bank’s 1-3% target range and perhaps a downtick in the outlook for future sales due to trade uncertainty.

    Europe: A busy week is in store that brings key confidence indicators as well as preliminary inflation data for June. At the same time, political uncertainties remain high with the immigration question dividing not just the German government, but turning into a test of the wider European Union just as heads of states prepare for the crucial June 29-30 summit on Brexit.

    The recently revamped Ifo Business Climate Index (Monday) now also incorporates Services Sentiment, which is expected to help the overall Business Climate Index to remain stable at 102.0, unchanged from the previous month and with the expectations reading seen falling only marginally to 98.2 from 98.5. Similarly, the ESI Economic Confidence reading (Thursday) is expected to come in just slightly weaker at 112.0, down from 112.5 in May. Preliminary Consumer Confidence came in weaker than expected and together with an expected dip in industrial confidence is likely to draw the index down. Preliminary Inflation readings meanwhile are likely to see the Eurozone HICP rate (Friday) reaching 2.0% in June, the upper limit of the ECB’s definition of price stability. The German rate (Thursday) is expected to lift to 2.3% from 2.2%. PMI surveys seem to be backing this up and despite the recent slowdown, job creation continues and unemployment continues to decline. German Jobless numbers (Friday) are seen falling a further -5K, leaving the jobless rate at a very low 5.2%.

    UK: Last week’s BoE policy meeting was unexpectedly impactful, with the minutes showing an increased rank of three MPC members calling for a 25 bp hike in the repo rate, more than the two expected. Although still outnumbered to the tune of six, the dissenters have put a rate hike as soon as November back on the table. The minutes showed that most members are overlooking the recent economic soft patch, although the majority still want to see more data. In its May Inflation Report, the BoE made it clear that declining spare capacity and low productivity growth meant that gradual and measured monetary tightening will be warranted.

    The calendar this week brings the June CBI Retail Sales survey (Tuesday), and the June Gfk Consumer Confidence survey, 3rd release Q1 GDP, Q1 Current Account figures and the BoE’s monthly report on lending and monetary supply (all due on Friday).

    Japan: The May Services PPI (Tuesday) is seen cooling to 0.8% y/y, after nearly doubling to 0.9% in April from 0.5% in March. May Retail Sales (Thursday) should be unchanged at 1.5% y/y overall, as they were in April. Friday’s heavy release schedule includes June Tokyo CPI, which is expected at an unchanged 0.4% y/y pace overall. May Unemployment is forecast at a steady 2.5%. Preliminary May Industrial Production is estimated to have fallen 0.8% versus the 0.5% increase in April, which would cap 3 months of solid gains. June Consumer Confidence should slip to 43.0 from 43.9, while May Housing Starts are set to post a 5.0% y/y contraction versus the prior 0.3% pace previously. May Construction Orders are also on tap.

    Australia: The Reserve Bank of Australia’s Head of Payments Policy Tony Richards speaks (Tuesday) at the Australian Business Economists event on cryptocurrencies. The sparse data calendar has May private sector credit on Friday.

    Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Treasury yields moved back up from lows, 10-year JGBs are also slightly higher as the stock sell off started to fade during the Asian session. 10-year Treasury yields are now up 0.5 bp on the day at 2.886% and 10-year JGB yields are up 0.7 bp at 0.026%. The escalating round of trade and investment restrictions continue to hang over markets, but at least for now investors seem to be taking a breather. Japanese stock markets reversed early losses as gains in banks offset declines in technology and telecoms. Topix and Nikkei are up 0.25% and 0.12% respectively. The Hang Seng gained 0.21% and while the CSI 300 is still down -0.57%, the Shenzen Comp is up 0.66%. US stock futures are also moving higher after sharp losses on Wall Street yesterday. Oil prices are up and the WTI is trading at USD 68.30 per barrel.

    FX Update: The main currencies are showing little net change ahead of the London interbank open. EURUSD edged a fresh 12-day high, at 1.1721, before ebbing back to near net unchanged levels nearer 1.1700. USDJPY has become directionally stuck near 109.50, above the 2-week low that was pegged yesterday at 109.37. The yen’s safe-haven bid of yesterday ran out of puff, while BoJ board member Sakurai said, also yesterday, (from Rome) that it remained “essential” for the central bank to conduct monetary policy “under the current framework for the time being.” By “current framework” he meant a short-time interest rate target of -0.1% and pegging of the 10-year JGB yield at near 0% (the curve control policy), alongside its QQE program. The stock market sell-off has abated in Asia. Japan’s Nikkei 225 managed to close with a fractional 0.2% gain, while S&P 500 futures are showing modest gains. President Trump’s trade advisor Navarro said that the Trump administration just wants “free, fair, and reciprocal trade…the mission here is to defend our technology and IP.”

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 27th June 2018.






    FX News Today


    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields lost earlier gains and are unchanged at 2.877%, 10-year JGB yields are up 0.3 bp at 0.027%, while yields elsewhere mostly declined as stocks struggled for direction with trade concerns continuing to hang over markets. Japanese indexes moved up from lows and are at -0.21% and -0.07% respectively. The Hang Seng meanwhile is down -0.73% and the CSI 300 down -1.59% as the Yuan continued to weaken offshore amid fears that China’s liquidity squeeze will lead to corporate bond defaults in 2H, and the drive for deleveraging is limiting lending and pushing up borrowing costs. Energy companies were supported by an ongoing rise in oil prices. The front-end USOil future rose to a high of USD 70.98, and is currently at USD 70.71 per barrel, amid reports the US is pushing allies to halt imports of Iranian crude. US stock futures are also down.


    FX Update: USDJPY has traded moderately lower, back under 110.00, after posting a three-session peak at 110.22. The pair was lifted by post-Tokyo fix demand, rising to 110.20, before selling overwhelmed and turned the Dollar lower. The Yen is also firmer against other currencies as stock markets ebb back again after yesterday’s reprieve. AUDJPY, a cross with relatively high beta characteristics that has been sensitive to the deepening trade spat, is down over 0.3%, earlier printing an eight-day low at 80.81. As for USDJPY, the pair is about at the halfway mark of the broadly sideways range that’s been seen over the last six weeks. USDJPY has Resistance at 110.20-22, levels which encompass recent daily highs. The net directionless path is illustrated by the flat profiles of both the 20- and 50-day moving averages, which are presently sandwiching prevailing levels, being respectively situated at 110.05 and 109.65. Fundamentally the picture would be a bullish one (divergent Fed versus BoJ policy paths) were it not for the safe-haven premium being installed in the Japanese currency amid the backdrop of rising trade protectionism.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 28th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: Asian stock markets traded mixed in Asia and trade jitters continue to weigh on sentiment after White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the decision to use less harsh measures on Chinese investment than feared did not represent a softer tone in the lingering trade tensions. Topix and Nikkei are mixed at -0.20% and +0.05% respectively. The Hang Seng is up 0.37% and the CSI 300 down -0.02%. US Stock Futures are moving higher, after a negative close on Wednesday and 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.1 bp at 2.836%, while 10-year JGB yields are up 0.1 bp at 0.024%. Emerging market currencies remained under pressure and oil prices are down on the day, but still trading above USD 72 per barrel.

    Reserve Bank of New Zealand held rates at 1.75%, matching widespread expectations for no change. The bank said the cash rate will remain at 1.75% “for now.” But they “are well positioned to manage change in either direction — up or down — as necessary.” Recall that in May, Governor Orr said the rate would remain at its current setting “for some time to come.” The Bank remains on hold, with recent soft data delaying the start of rate hikes further into next year.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 29th June 2018.






    FX News Today


    Asian Market wrap: Stock Markets moved mostly higher during the Asian session, with Chinese Stocks outperforming after the Central Bank said in comments following the monetary policy committee that it will use comprehensive policy tools to keep economic developments steady and stabilize market expectations, thus underpinning hopes for a loosening of liquidity conditions. The CSI300 rallied 1.41%, Shenzen Comp and Shanghai Comp are up 1.53% and 2.52% respectively. The Hang Seng managed a 1.42% rise, while Nikkei posted more muted gains of 0.09%, as trade concerns continue to cloud over sentiment. The dovish Central Bank comments saw 10-year yields falling -4.6 bp in China, while elsewhere yields picked up as stocks improved. 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.8 bp at 2.855%, 10-year JGB yields gained 0.3 bp to 0.026%. US Stock Futures are also moving higher and the WTI Future is trading at USD 73.24 per barrel. UK Stock Futures are also moving higher. Data releases so far have not been stock friendly, with UK Consumer Confidence and German Retail Sales falling and German import price inflation rising sharply. Still to come are Eurozone HICP and German jobless numbers as well as UK lending data and the Swiss KOF leading indicator.


    FX Update: Both the Dollar and Yen have weakened against most of the other main currencies, with the Yen underperforming, while the Euro outperformed on meeting some strong demand on news that EU members had thrashed out the deal on immigration. The deal aims to shore up external borders and create screening centres for migrants, which is seen as placating the Italian populist government. EURUSD flipped back above 1.1650, rallying by a big figure in total before capping out at two-day high of 1.1666, and most Euro crosses concurrently rallied, too. USDJPY lifted above Wednesday’s 110.49 high as global stock markets rebounded, causing an unwinding of the Japanese currency’s safe haven premium. EURJPY and AUDJPY, among other Yen crosses, also strengthened strongly. China’s PBoC said today it would use comprehensive policy tools to maintain positive economic developments and stabilize market expectations.

    Date : 02nd July 2018.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 02nd July 2018.




    THE ECONOMIC WEEK AHEAD

    Trade and tariffs remained in the headlines through Q2 and along with political jitters, caused global consternation. And with the US’s July 6 deadline for collection of additional duties on Chinese products, tariffs will remain the center of attention. Behind the scenes however, US growth has picked up steam as the stimulative effects from deregulation, tax reform and fiscal measures start to take hold and overshadow the noise. While it looks as though Q3 will start off on the same footing as Q2, the big questions for the markets will be whether the trade skirmishes escalate, and whether US momentum can support growth over the rest of the world.

    United States: It’s an important week in the US. Along with the July 4 Independence Day holiday, there are the month’s key releases. Additionally, July 6 is the deadline for tariffs on 818 lines of about $34 bln of Chinese goods. The data slate is headlined by the June jobs report, as well as manufacturing and services PMIs, vehicle sales, and trade. The FOMC minutes of the June 12, 13 meeting will provide extra insight on the shift to a more hawkish stance.

    The June nonfarm payroll report (Friday) is expected to show a solid 200k increase in jobs after the 223k gain in May, while the jobless rate should hold steady at a low 3.8%. There’s ongoing controversy over the degree of slack in the system. On Monday, the ISM should slip to 58.0 in June, from May’s 58.7. Despite the expected decline, the index remains solid and not too far off from the 14-year high of 60.8 in February. The light vehicle sales (Tuesday) expected to rise to a 17.0 mln rate in June from 16.8 mln in May, with autos at 5.3 mln and trucks at 9.0 mln, versus respective rates of 5.2 and 8.9 mln in May. The May supply – disruption for truck assemblies from a fire at a parts supplier may disrupt truck sales in June and July, though more generally truck sales continue to drive vehicle sales. The May Trade Deficit (Friday) should narrow to -$43.5 bln, from -$46.2 bln in April and a cycle high -$55.5 bln in February, given the Advance Goods Trade Balance narrowing to -$68.2 bln.

    Canada: Canada’s data docket contains two key reports that will inform the outlook for the Bank of Canada announcement next week. Employment (Friday) is seen rising 25.0k in June after the 7.5k drop in May and 1.1k dip in April. The unemployment rate is expected to hold at a 40-year low 5.8%. The trade deficit is expected to widen to -C$2.2 bln in May from -C$1.9 bln in April. The June Ivey PMI (Friday) is anticipated to slide to a still expansionary 61.0 from 62.5 in May. Employment and trade in line with estimates would support the expectation that the Bank of Canada will lift rates 25 basis points to 1.50% in the July 11 announcement. Markit Canada manufacturing PMI for June is due on Tuesday. The markets are closed Monday in observation of the Canada Day holiday.

    Europe: With the ECB having effectively clarified the policy path well into the second half of next year, and the important June summit out of the way without the new Italian government blowing up the party, the markets should be settling into a slower summer mood in a week that includes largely secondary data releases. So for now, market volatility is likely to continue adding to pressures on the ECB to revamp the rules on re-investment as it prepares to phase out net asset purchases by the end of the year.

    Data releases are unlikely to change the overall picture significantly. The final readings on June PMIs are expected to confirm preliminary readings of 55.0 for both the Manufacturing (Monday) as well as the Services reading (Wednesday), which should leave the composite on course to be confirmed at 54.8. Readings still point to ongoing robust growth across both sectors and Markit reported with the preliminary numbers that part of the recent slowdown was indeed due to capacity constraints with delivery times lengthening. Meanwhile, German manufacturing orders (Thursday) are expected to rebound 1.0% m/m from the 2.5% m/m decline in April and industrial production is seen to pick up 0.2% m/m, after -1.0% m/m.

    Events include ECBspeak from Weidmann (Thursday) as well as Nouy (Friday) and bond auctions in Spain and France on Thursday.

    UK: The calendar brings the June Markit PMI surveys, with the manufacturing PMI (Monday) anticipated at 54.0, down from 54.4 in May. Evidence suggests that the slowing in economic growth across the channel have been crimping export performance in the manufacturing sector. The construction PMI (Tuesday) is expected to arrive with an unchanged 52.5 headline reading, and anticipate the services PMI (Wednesday) to also hold unchanged, at 54.0. In-line data should keep the BoE on its gradualist tightening course, with markets looking for a 25 bp hike in the repo rate at the August MPC meeting.

    Japan: The May personal income and PCE (Friday) should show spending contracting further to a -1.7% y/y clip, from the prior -1.3% outcome, another worrying sign from the region.

    China: The June Caixin/Markit manufacturing PMI should slip slightly to 51.0 from 51.1. The June services PMI (Wednesday) is penciled in at 52.5 from 52.9. Again such results would add to worries over a slowdown and fears that tariff threats are weighing on sentiment.

    Australia: The RBA’s meeting (Tuesday) casts a long shadow over a busy calendar. No change is expected to the current 1.50% setting for the cash rate target as inflation remains low. The rate has been unchanged since the 25 bp cut in August 2016. The economic data docket is full this week. Building permits (Tuesday) are projected to bounce 2.0% in May (m/m, sa) after the 5.0% drop in April. May retail shipment values (Wednesday) are expected to rise 0.2% (m/m, sa) following the 0.4% gain in April. The trade surplus (Wednesday) is seen at A$1.3 bln in May from A$1.0 bln in April.
